Beautiful but Unsuitably Dressed Child playing with a Diabolo June 1908 French Fashion Paper Le Petit Echo de la Mode
Charming to look at but not very practical..the child on the front cover of this 21st June 1908 issue of the French Fashion Paper Le Petit Echo de la Mode defeats the restrictions of lace, ruffles, ribbon and a big hat to get to grips with her diabolo (Very popular in France at this time)
There are more elegant dresses and big hat illustrations in the gorgeous double page centre spread - with a frame of detailed pictures of skirts, tops, dresses and jackets (Would look brilliant framed)
The paper has 12 black and white pages of fashion illustrations, news, advice, crafts and fascinating 1900s adverts.
The paper measures 36cm x 30cm and is in good overall condition.
